Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM) has donated a Triton pick-up truck to Dignity Farm School, a one-stop community learning for the underprivileged urban residents in Bentong, Pahang.
The pick-up was handed over by MMM CEO, Tomoyuki Shinnishi, and will be used for the farm’s daily operations. The 4×4 will also be used to transport Orang Asli to schools.
At these schools, they are given transformative youth education programmes including agriculture and skills development.
“In line with the Malaysian government’s efforts to reopen schools soon with tightened and updated standard operating procedures (SOPs), we wanted to relook into how we can help the underprivileged and indigenous community in terms of education and health,” said Shinnishi.
“We are happy to work with the Dignity Farm School, a place where skills and knowledge are connected and taught from a wellspring of sources and experiences, combining practical skills and theory in a farm setting. This in return will also prepare the underprivileged children in the future to enter an agricultural and tourism workforce requiring both innovation and manpower,” Shinnishi added.
Recently, MMM also loaned an Outlander and Triton to NGO Mercy Malaysia to transport frontliners to vaccination centres. The company also contributed a Triton to NGO INSAF Malaysia to distribute food to old folks and orphanages. Earlier this year, MMM also donated RM35,000 and laptops to various charitable organisations.
